“Because fitness is not a punishment, it’s a privilege” – Neghar Fonooni
I remember a time (in the not so distant past) that I logged calories in and calories out. Basically I would workout so I could eat. I did my morning workout, entered it into my handy dandy program, then I would plan my day accordingly based upon the calories I burned and what this program said I could have. Of course, the more I exercised, the more calories I could consume. Some days I would get off track and then I would feel I needed to add another workout just so I could eat dinner without guilt.

No More Excuses! Easier said than done, right? I mean, I don’t always make excuses, I just don’t or can’t or won’t do said thing. Anybody with me?
But there are definitely times when our excuses feel very real. And honestly, they don’t feel like excuses. They are facts of our lives. They are real to us, and it’s hard to see a work around or another option. Healthy eating? I only have so much in my grocery budget. Work out? I only have so much time in a day. Rest? Have you seen my schedule??? Quiet time? I pray when I’m falling asleep at night.

A key to sticking to a fitness plan and getting fit is to do fitness together. Having an accountability partner has been shown to be a key to overall sustained health and fitness.
We were never meant to do life on our own. Back at Creation in Genesis, God said it wasn’t good that man should be alone. When God ordered Noah to build the ark, He told him to take TWO of every kind of animal along for the ride 🙂 I believe our fitness journey is no different. You and I need a friend, a community to do this fit life with. We are better if we do fitness together.
I have been blessed to be a part of some great groups of people who have supported and encouraged me along the way.
